SAFE INFERENCE DEDUCIBLE.
A fair analysis of the statement mailo
hy Mr. Talbot and published in yenter
day Astoria n, in regard to th Tilln
niook extension of the A. v., allowing
for a!) possible reservations one in hi
official capacity would be disposed to
make in so lnrjje a matter, leave
resiilium of certainty that the road will
le limit, that U ineontrovertilile. The
fact that two route will be surveved
but puts the issue upon a hypothec
merely of deterniininif which profile will
le chosen for the active work of eon
it ruction. It ha been known here for
years, that either the coast line around
Xecaniie Mountain, or the route throng
the Xehalem Valley, i practicable, ami
present no engineering difficulties that
are insurmountable; so the matter will
resolve itself to the simple ascertain
ment of the most practicable and least
costly, and renders the issue of actual
construction of the road beyond further
doubt. This is the desirable conclusion.
and having reached it, nothing is left
the Astorian and the Tillamookian but
to work unceasingly for the generous
largess accruing from the simple and
substantial fact that the TILLAMOOK
EXTEXSIOM WILL BE BUILT FORTH

! NOTICE IS HEREBY TAKEN.
"Portland's anxiety, as to commerce,
bas its sources far more in the state of
the river and bar below Astoria than
in the river between Portland and As
toria. Daily Astorian please copy."
' Yes, the Astorian takes notice! It has
been taking notice of Portland's over
weening and proverbial interest in the
Columbia river bar for lo these many
years; and among other things it has
noticed Portland's frenzied and ceaseless
efforts in behalf of the multitude of
projects to open the upper Columbia and
the Willamette, and every other channel
in the broad state that led to Portland.
while, through all the years the untold
millions of the country have been lav
ished on plans and schemes to enhance
the commercial prestige of the metrop
olis, the QjfE GREAT GATE-WAY OF
THE STATE OF OREGOX IS STILL
BARRED, by the deliberate inefficacy
of a jetty system, contrived, also, in
the interest of that one city. Oh, yes,
we are taking due notice and remember
ing all that Portland has done, and tho
sophistical stuff put out at seasonable
intervals by the Portland press, led by
the Oregonian, to bluff and bamboozle
the ordinary and unthinking reader.
The one unmitigated horror of Portland
is a forty-foot bar at the mouth of this
superb highway. Had Portland wanted
such a channel on the bar it would have
been there years ago; she will keep the
working depth on the bar at a corres
ponding depth with what she can use in
the Columbia river above Tongue Point,
and so long as she can help it, there will
never will be more on the great sand
barrier that stretches across the sea
mouth of the river that serves her well
with twenty-five feet, but which would
paralyze her if she had to maintain ten
feet more. She can preach her fool doc
trines to communities less intimate with
this question than Astoria and look for
unwinking credulity, but this city has
been too long taking notice of the policies
that have been wrought and applied tj
the sole and exclusive benefit of Port
land, to swallow, without gagging, any
fraction of the editorial humbug
employed in this behalf. If Portland is
honestly and profoundly interested in
the state, as her great and prophetic
print alleges, why is it that every con
ceivable avenue of commerce in the state
that leads Portland-ward has had mil
lions spent upon it, while the one great
highway that leads to them all and
would contribute to them all, the me
tropolis above all others included, is
bottled up absolutely, and the very, and
only, plan for its betterment, made un
availing as the years and the millions
annromiated to it fade awayt W-2
say again, in all justifiable faith, that
it is because of Portland's bitter and
haunting terror of the rising of some
commercial competitor between her and
the deep sea, all buncombe and false
pleas to the contrary notwithstanding.
THE WEATHER MAN.
The United States spends about
$1,500,000 anually on the science of me
leorology. Hundreds of trained observ'
ers expend earnest work in this cause,
and more real good results therefrom
than some folks suppose. Weather pre
dictions, as undertaken by Uncle Sam,
mean much more than the bare an
nouncement that tomorrow will be
"rainy" or "fair." Warnings of floods
and fronts and storms are given, besides;
and many a fruit grower, cranberry cut
turist, farmer, stock keeper or mariner,
has had good cause to thank the govern
ment for the time lines and accuracy of
these reports. Let's all stop poking
fun at the weather man! He makes mis
takes sometimes; but he scores many a
bull's-eye hit, too.

Did you ever count the words in a
column of newspaper? There are over a
thousand words in a column. Suppose
you sit down and write one thousand
words on one subject and another thous
and on another till you have written
about fifteen thousand words. Try it
and see if it is right easy. Keep that
gait up for a month. Then chase a local
item all over town and after you have
secured the facts all right condense them
in a ew lines, an hour's work, that can
be read in a few seconds. Do this for
a dozen items that seem insignificant
after they are printed, but which you
know are important, then have the items
criticised and the inaccuracies pointed
out to you when U is too late to cor
rect them. Oh, yes, its dead easy to
conduct a newspaper,
We like to Work and we like to see
others work, but we just arise to re
mark that when we get to be worth as
much money as some we know, work
with us -will cease. We could never dis
cover why men 60 and 70 years of age
who are worth from forty to one hundred
thousand dollars should continue to toil,
from early until late and in all kinds
of weather. WTe like to see a man pro
vide smething for their family after
they are gone, but the average boy U
better off if not left too much property,
You who have labored your three score
years should stop work, and enjoy life
the few short years you have left to re
main with us.

Often a person is sized up by his appear
ance; by the tone that surrounds him. And
more often a business house is sized up by
the stationary it uses. A cheap letter
head or a poor bill head gives a mighty
poor first impression and makes business
harder to transact. Good printing costs no
more than poor printing. The first im
pression is half the battle in business.
You wouldn't employ a "sloppy" sales
man; why put up with "sloppy" station
ery, that gives a wrong impression of the
importance of your business. Let us do
